One of the most romantic stories ever written, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY won the 2014 Tony Awards® for Best Original Score and Best Orchestrations. The musical adaptation of the best-selling novel and popular film will play at The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts April 26 – May 1. Tickets are on sale now.
Featuring gorgeous, soulful music that draws upon the rich textures of Americana and folk and the sweeping balladry of classic Broadway, Joe Dziemianowicz of the New York Daily News hails it as “…one of Broadway’s best scores in the last decade.” Tom Geier of Entertainment Weekly exclaims that Brown “… has written a lush and deeply romantic score, filled with rich and melodic duets,” and NPR proclaims it’s, “MAGIC! An evening you will cherish long after the show is over!”
